Carnations

Still plugging away at the thank you cards. I'm almost finished, though. For this one I used the sketch from Stampin' Sisterhood (they've gone to monthly challenges now, so check it out), and the color combo from Pretty Palette #53 (yellow, kraft, red). I used the carnation from PTI's "Year of Flowers: Collection" as both the focal and an addition to the patterned paper on the card base. It's a fun way to create added interest to otherwise ho-hum paper. (Plus, I didn't know what to do with the blank space on the two right hand corners). The sentiment is a partial stamping of a random "Thank you" stamp. I used Verve's Charming Oval dies for the sentiment and spellbinders cirlces large and scalloped circles large for the image.
